COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Point Oktoberfest is an authentic Marzen Style Lager Beer, a style reminiscent of the beers originally brewed for the first Oktoberfest Celebrations in Germany during the early 1800’s. Hand-crafted using Hallertauer hops and sweet Vienna roasted malts for a rich amber hue. The result is a full flavored, well balanced beer, brewed in celebration of the upcoming season.

A nice looking pour. A clear amber color with a nice two-finger tall off-white head. No real lacing. Boring malty aroma with some acidic notes and maybe some light spice and hops thrown in. The flavor wasn’t good. Malty and acidic with no spice or hops pushing through. Thin mouthfeel.

Has a detectable flavor of spices, yeast and roasted malts with a slightly dry hoppy finish. A little thin, but pulls off the Marzen style reasonably well. Not technically one of the better examples of the style, but worth a try if one wants a sessionable autumn beer.

From a distance, it looks like a Marzen/Oktoberfest. But when you get up close, its just brown water with a tad bit of hop and malt.

On Tap at the Great Lakes Brewfest. First off at the beer fest 2008, poured by the brew master himself. Amber with a medium white head. Aroma of grain, sweet malt and the smell of Munich. Taste of sweet malt, apple, malt and spice. Finishes dry and it’s a bit thin but overall not a bad effort from Point brewery.

Single from Three Cellars. Sweet and a bit weak light malts. Not bad though.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2009 Marzen style, light golden brown color with a thin, light tan head. Slight hop aroma with a hint of caramel. Rich, roasted malt taste with a little hoppy bite. A well balanced and tasty Oktoberfest beer.

Same old Point for me... again it tastes like Point Special Lager, but with random spices thrown in... not impressed.

Copper color. Smell of roasted malt, leaves, spice and bread. Taste of leaves, malt, nuts, spice, bread and caramel. At times, it was enjoyable, and then at other times it was harsh.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 21, 2007
12 oz bottle. Poured a clear medium orange color. Head was off white with good retention. There was only minimal lace left behind at the end. Aroma was of light butterscotch/buttery caramel. There was also a whiff of steeping barley. Slightly sweet with a hint of malty caramel flavor. There wasn’t any significant hop bitterness or flavor. So so.
